Dropbox sync might make your mac slow if your dropbox doesn't enough space.

My Dropbox Plus license was out yesterday, and its sync stopped because there was no space in it. After that, my mac became too slow. I couldn't find the cause out first, but somehow, I figured it out that was caused by Dropbox sync.

So, I guess it makes sense to notify users that your dropbox ran out of space or to stop syncing when it couldn't sync because of over space.
